Born out of the ashes of the Creek Fire, Susie Harder wanted to find a way for kids impacted by the wildfire.

Her vision was to empower kids to write a book about their experiences. She created the Junior Authors Program and it took off.

With the program’s first book published, on August 1 the Junior Authors program will be available to schools around the world to write their own books and create their own community impact projects.
